Aspen Academy Fifth through Eighth Graders grow to love the beauty of mathematics that comes from an inherent sense of how easily they can develop mathematical intuition. Students are taught to look for mathematics everywhere. For example, in athletics classes, items like force, motion, and angles are discussed.
Aspen Academy set a national model that the best schools around the country have followed when it adopted Singapore Mathematics as its foundation curriculum for K - 6th grade math.
Singapore Mathematics has produced the highest performing math students globally.
In Seventh and Eighth grade, students are transitioned to high school level mathematics in algebra and geometry to allow for honors or advanced placement opportunity once the student enters high school.
In addition to our foundation curriculum, Aspen Academy is preparing each and every child to be competent in the realm of financial literacy, self management, and sufficiency as well as to be able to understand and manage personal and business finances.
Components of this program include:
- General Financial Literacy
- Macro and Micro Economics
- Banking: Checking, Savings, and Lending
- Investments and the Stock Market
- Accounting, Finance Management, and Reporting
Our Middle School Mathematics program is a combination of both.
